Natalie West and Toby Cooper were best friends growing up, on and off the ice. But when Toby’s hockey career took off, their friendship was left behind. Now Natalie has a crazy plan to land her crush—Toby’s biggest rival—and she needs Toby’s help to pull it off.

When Nat asks Toby to be her fake boyfriend, he can’t say no. Not when it means getting his best friend back. Bu

So happy that I got to read the third book in the Corrigan Falls Raiders series!

I immensely enjoyed reading the previous two books, especially the second one – Winslow is my ultimate YA love. But this one was great as well. I absolutely loved Toby – he’s such a good character and an amazing guy! I love his #bromance with Winslow and Tyler, too. I loved it when my boys got all protective of each other. Nat is a cute girl but sadly, I couldn’t relate to her as much as I could to Karen and Claudia.

This was a quick, fairly cute read. It was a little more friends-to-love trope than fake-relationship, but since I like both of those, it was ok. I didn't really care for Natalie. I enjoyed the chapters from Toby more, but he fell a little short of being a character I could really love. Overall, it was a good palate-cleanser from all the more serious books I've been reading lately. ...more

I wanted a cute and fun book, and that is exactly what I got with this book. This book made me laugh, swoon, say "awww", and so much more. Cameron continues to show that she knows how to write adorable YA romances.

I liked that characters from the other books were mentioned in this book, but they weren't major characters. It nice to see some glimpses of them without their stories taking over the story of the main characters, Natalie and Toby. Natalie and Toby were great main characters. I loved

Winging It was freaking adorable. It made me swoon and laugh and I just flew through this book.

Winging It is appearently the third book in a series, but can be totally read as a stand-alone since that is what I did. I didn't even knew it was part of a series till I looked it up on Goodreads, but I will definitely read the other two books as well! I had so much fun with Winging It.

As a lover of sports romances, I always have my eye out for new ones, especially in the YA world. For some reason, there just aren't enough YA romances that revolve around sports. When I saw Winging It and read the summary, I knew that it was a book that I just had to read.

Natalie West has had the biggest crush on Scott, who just so happens to be the cousin of her old best friend Toby. When Toby started dating someone, he and Natalie started drifting apart until they just didn't see each other

Nat and Toby used to be good friends. Unfortunately a lot of things have come between them and they've lost their easy friendship ever since Toby became a successful hockey player. That used to be Nat's dream, but there isn't a team for girls she can join. When Toby's cousin Scott is back in town Nat sees her chance to finally make him notice her. If Toby pretends to be her boyfriend Scott will go after her, like he does with everything Toby has. In her mind the plan is pretty solid, but in real ...more

The Story

Scott Dakins is back in town after almost one year off in Toronto and two people are seriously worried about the fact, but for entirely different reasons…

Natalie West has got a crush on Scott for a while now, but she may as well be invisible as far as the guy is concerned. He never spared her a single glance – and why should he

Actual Rating: 4.25

This was an enjoyable read. I really thought the story line was great. Though the book is short, it did make me laugh. This is the 3rd book in the series, but it could be read as a standalone as well. I think this book is my favourite because it was a friends to lovers story. I found it funny that while Toby and Natalie were pretending to date each other to get other people to like them, they end up falling in love. I thought Natalie and Toby were relatable characters because

The book is already out, so you can go and check it out.
This is the second book I read in this series. I still have to read the first one. I have it on my tablet and will read it as soon as I have caught up with my ARCs. This is something that I love about the series. You can read the books alone without having to read the other books.

Well, this definitely wasn't my favourite from the Corrigan Falls Raiders, but I can't deny the soft spot I have for this series. I'm easily satisfied by contemporary romances, and not only does Winging It involve the friendship to romance trope, which I love, it also involves my ultimate guilty pleasure, the fake relationship trope.

Of course, with these overly sweet stories, I never expect much depth beyond the predictable plot. It's not difficult to read the synopsis and immediately know the

This was super cute! But there were some parts where Nat annoyed me and Scott infuriated me. But Nat grew on me and Toby was adorable. And I would love to be friends with Winslow and Dawn they both sound pretty cool.

A while back I read book 2 of this series, Playing Defense, and I really liked that one. I equally liked this one, with an added bonus of two of my favorite tropes being at play here.

Much like the previous book, I really liked the writing. And more importantly, once again, the characters felt their age. They read like teenagers, doing the wrong things most of the time, but trying to find the right way.

I’ve mentioned this before, but I’m a huge fan of the best friends turned

I really enjoyed this one: there were so many good things! I loved that there was a lot of talk of empowerment and saying "no" when you weren't comfortable. I also liked that Nat had a goal she wanted to reach and had Toby help her. I also liked that Nat didn't want to be a part of something just for the sake of being a part of it.

However, once Natalie’s hockey options ended, and Toby started playing in the OHL they drifted apart. Now Natalie needs Toby’s help to be noticed by her crush/his rival, Scott Dakins, and act like her fake boyfriend. This contemporary sports romance takes place in Corrigan Falls, Ontario.

Remember the fake kiss in Some Kind of Wonderful? Maybe not - that's a pretty old movie. But it's an excellent fake kiss, one that gives us and the characters a good idea that "fake" is a relative term. (Okay, I looked it up! I forgot how "pretty" they made Eric Stolz look - I think I prefer him a little rougher. Anyway...

And, anyway #2 - that kiss was pretty much the inspiration for this whole book. Fake relationship turned real? Not exactly a new idea.

I’m not much into hockey fan, but I love a good story line. Anything having to do with friends getting together, especially after many years. And of course some initial deceiving, hello I’m all over it! This book didn’t disappoint in the least it was absolutely delightful.

We meet Natalie and Toby, two friends who have known each other forever, and their main common factor is hockey. They both love the sport sure things happened where Nat just gave up on it but reuniting with her old friend has b

I didn't like the Story of Nat and Toby as much as I liked the other books in this series.

My Problem was that I didn't really connect with the characters and therefore wasn't as invested in their Story as I was in the others on the Corrigan Raiders Hockey Team.
But I am still continuing with the series, because overall I really like it.

Not so great but not so good either. Which sounds just as dodgy as my feelings about this book.

This book. THIS BOOK. It was delectable. I liked the last book, but I LOVED this one.

I'm just going to go on a rave now, ok??? (And because I have to say this, I got an ARC, but that's never stopped me from being honest, has it?)

So we've got Nat and Toby. Toby is one of the Raiders, i.e. sexy ice hockey player. He and Nat used to be best friends and play ice hockey together as kids, but then puberty hit, and he became a star. Over time, they sort of grew apart. But then Nat decides she wants Sco

This review and many more can be found on my blog: Feed Your Fiction Addiction

This book is pretty much exactly what it advertises – it was a light, cute read that gave me the warm and fuzzy feels. I don’t know what it is about the fake boyfriend trope, but I love it. Sure, I know how it’s all going to play out, but that doesn’t stop me from enjoying the ride!

What Fed My Addiction:

Sports-minded but not just for people who like sports.
I’m not a sports fan, so sometimes I’m hesitant to read books

Natalie West is crazy about Scott Dakins. But she knows she doesn't have a chance at him. So she concocts a plan with her bestfriend, Toby Cooper, who happens to be Scott's cousin.

Now, Scott is so full of himslf, he isn't really into girls he doesn't know. Until he learns that Nat is his cousin's girlfriend. Now Scott must do everything to get all things that his cousin likes. Including Natalie.

Toby Cooper is an upcoming hockey player at Corrigan Falls, just like her former bestfriend

A botched idea that tests friendships in relationships and learning from your mistakes.

Horrible Idea
In order to get a guy's attention Nat decides during her senior year, she enlists her estranged best guy friend, Toby to help her get her crush's attention. She and Toby haven't spoken ever since she thought he shot up in the hockey world. Nat is often criticized for playing on a women's hockey team with women who are her mother's age. But she's

This book had potential but it went all to hell. I thought it was real life but not highschool.

Nat was so immature, she made that deal without caring of toby’s feelings. Only cared when she figured it out it would make her look bad and cheater (she is) everyone told her how was scott and she was like oh no no no, he is a saint. Made excuses for him just bc of his past like: toby you had everything and his parents split up and he was jealous. Okay, one thing is being jealous and the other is try

I like that this was a YA book where the teenagers actually talked and behaved like teenagers. All of the characters were realistically mature but naive, as you would expect teenagers to be.
I really liked Toby and Nat but wasn't totally convinced of their chemistry. Though I didn't agree with her crush on Scott, I understood the way a teenager thinks when they have a crush and knew she was blinded by the image she had built up in her head of him. However, when she thought that Toby and Scott sh

This is book # 3 in the Corrigan Falls Raiders series. This book can be read as a standalone novel. For reader enjoyment and complete understanding, please read the series in the order intended.

Natalie AKA "Nat" have been best buds since they played hockey together when they were young kids. Now, on the last year of high school, she asks him to help her win the affections of the cousin he hates.

Toby is disgusted that someone he admires and yes, maybe likes, wants his lousy cousin. Lucky for them

This was a super cute story, though sometimes frustrating, lol.

We have Nat and Toby, two ex best friends that because of different reasons (nothing really bad), grew apart along the years.

Now Nat wants Toby’s help to getting the guy of her dreams… Toby’s jerk of a cousin.

In order to do that, they pretend they are dating and start spending more and more time together. This makes them realize that they were great friends and now they might want to be more than that. Which proves to be di
